A Report on the Great Room Clean-Up

Thank you all for your suggestion of sewing bells on the hem of my clothes yesterday. You are too helpful.

It was actually kind of dramatic. Right before I started, the electricity went out. It remained out for over 4 hours. So....I cleaned in the heat and darkness. I really couldn't see in the closet, but I managed to drag all the books out of there and arrange them neatly on the girls' bookshelves. Then I cleaned up under Little Bit's loft because it's by the window and I could see.

But I couldn't stop there. I had to clean up under Sweetheart's loft and now they are both lovely. But I got hot and tired and stopped. So there are 2 or 4 major piles to go through and now that we have lights I could finish the closet.


They actually did not own as much stuff as I would have thought. They each have one shelf in the closet for their special toys that are too precious to throw in the general population of the play room. You know, their favorites.

And I'm happy to report that the window no longer sports a sheet for a curtain. (I had to take it off so I could see) It now has......nothing. I need your help. I know we've talked about this before but I'm still undecided.

It's a long, high window and Little Bit's dresser sits right under it. So no long flow-y curtains. There isn't a privacy issue but I'd like at least a sheer something over the window. What to do???? Something sheer and something swagg-y over the top? What? ACK!!

And I found this fabric but there isn't much of it and I don't care if I use it or not. It would have to be an accent fabric with something else. What???? ACK!

Help please. Thank you.


  1. Just stopping over to catch up this morning. You are hilarious. Glad you survived the room clean-up--you're braver than I am. I'm on my way to school, too, but thinking I should just get out and play, too!

    God bless you today, Ms. Brenda!

  2. Well done Mom! I think you could totally use a green-ish sheer for a middle panel, and use that flower material on the sides...OR use green-ish (or pink) sheer material for the whole window, and make your flower material a swag...either would be totally cute!


I don't get to talk to a lot of actual grown-ups during the day, so your comments make me really happy! :)
